Spice Bird’s Piri-Piri is Worth Going to Boracay ForOctober 6, 2015
- Mikka WeeWords
If you have time for one sober choice in Boracay—make it Spice Bird. Though their grub makes for perfect hangover food, I really recommend you fully engage your awareness and taste buds here. Located at Boracay’s D’Mall, Spice Bird serves some of—do I dare say—some of the best piri piri I’ve had in the Philippines.
The fact that it’s in Boracay places me in a heightened state of constant yearning; the feeling of a long distance relationship that gnaws and haunts your memories and shatters your heart as you reminisce those good times—how each crackle of their piri-piri dressed chicken skin sent shivers up and down my spine, or how each kick from their cheeky homemade sauces just escalated the entire eating experience. Not to mention, their sandwiches and piri-piri boards also made an indelible impression.
Choose from their piri-piri chicken, pork, or shrimp boards (or get all three!) that come with succulent meat, spice rice, a side salad, an addictive milky roll (that I dipped in piri-piri sauce), and veggie chips. They also have piri-piri cubanos, a piri-piri albondigas sandwich, as well as a delectable pulled pork.
And don’t forget to make room for dessert that can easily sweep you off your feet—a homemade calamansi cheesecake is light and tangy in all the right places, while a “Double Happiness” sundae comes packed with two scoops of dark chocolate ice cream, Malagos chocolate shards, sea salt, and some bergamot-infused olive oil.
This, ladies and gentlemen, is piri-piri chicken at its golden age. Spice Bird, you freaking nailed it. Please set up shop in Metro Manila soon.
